Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge Blog ~ Glitter and Lace


Hello fellow Crafters,

It is Friday and that means it is time for another challenge over at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge Blog! Today our challenge theme is Glitter and Lace. Well that sounds easy enough! So come on over and join in with the fun... Our amazing sponsor for this challenge is Mayzy Art. Oh my what fun images are there to find. It was the first time for us to use the images and I know for myself that I enjoyed coloring mine up!!!!


Es ist Freitag und das heisst, dass es eine neue Challenge gibt fuer Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge Blog! Unser Thema fuer diese Challenge ist Glitter and Lace. Das hoehrt sich doch ganz gut an?! Dann muesst Ihr mal schnell vorbeischauen und mit machen... Unser super Sponsor ist Mayzy Art. Die haben ganz tolle Stemple. Fuer unser DT war es das erste mal das wir diese Stemple benutzt haben. Ich muss sagen das mir mein Stemple ganz viel Spass bereitet hat.

Ok here is my card. I love the way it turned out. I have been coloring along with Alyce Keegan on her new web page and I have learned so much especially with the shading and adding deeper colors. It make the pictures pop! The name of my image is Sandy and you can find her here

Ok hier ist meine fertige Karte. Ich bind ganz begeistert wie sie herausgekommen ist. Ich habe in den letzten Wochen mit Alyce Keegan mitgemalt und habe viel dabei gelernt, besonders das ich mehr dunkele Farben benutzten muss um die Schatten besser herzustellen. Der Name meines Bild is Sandy und Ihr koennt sie hier finden.

Here is the list of colors that I used:
Hier ist die Liste meiner Farben:

Skin/Haut: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20
Hair/Haare: E34, E47, E49, E57, E77
Swimwear/Badeanzug: B91, B93, B95, B99, R24, R27, R29
Sand, Sandcastle/Sand, Sandburg: E30, E31, E33, E37, Y35, Y38,C1, C3

I just wanted to show everyone what I did to create the sky for this scene. The first picture shows a copy of my image that I cut out and then place right over the colored image. Then I used a piece of paper that I had cut the edge with scalloped scissors. I had marked with a pencil where the edge of the die would be. With the marks I knew how wide the sky needed to be. With Ranger Inks, Tumbled Glass and Broken China I inked along the edges of the paper. I started on the top and worked myself down.

I wollte Euch mal zeigen wie ich den Himmel aud meinem Bild gemacht habe. Ich habe eine Fotokopie meines Bild gemacht und ausgeschnitten. Dann mit Tesafilm ueber das bemalte Bild geklebt. Ich habe ein Papier am Ende mit einer Schere ausgeschitten die Halbogen hat. Ich hatte auch die Stanze auf das Bild gelegt und mir ein paar Makierungen gemacht. So wusste ich wie weit der Himmel gemalt werden muss. Dafuer habe ich Ranger Inks benutzt, Tumbled Glass und Broken China. Ich habe von oben nach unten gearbeitet damit die Wolken hergestellt werden.

And this is how the card came together. When I started I had no idea how this would turn out. To add lace and glitter to a beach scene was a bit crazy in my mind, lol. It worked out alright I think...

Und da koennt Ihr sehen wie diese Karte entstanden ist. Als ich mit der Karte angefange habe wusste ich nicht wie ich Glitzer und Spitze in eine Strandszene einbauen kann, das war fuer mein Kopf gar nicht so einfach, lol. Ich glaube ich habe es doch ganz gut hinbekommen...
